That is simply how the Messaging Gateway works, there is no way to co figure it otherwise. You just need two MX records weighted the same and if one scanner is not available, mail will go to the other scanner.

Symantec Messaging Gateway has no inbuilt High Availability features such as failover. You can use load balancers or some firewalls to failover to the second SMG if one stops responding.
